Use of He is MRI Scanner UPSC NOTE


  • Since 2006, there has been a global shortage of helium, despite its abundance in the universe.

  • Helium is mainly sourced from natural gas reserves and is used as a coolant in MRI scanners.

  • The Russia-Ukraine conflict has exacerbated the shortage of liquid helium.

  • This has affected MRI scanner supply, causing issues for diagnostic facilities worldwide, including India.

  • A new type of MRI scanner is designed to avoid reliance on liquid helium.

  • These scanners can use more readily available and cheaper liquid nitrogen to cool the magnets.

  • Voxelgrids Innovations Private Ltd., based in Bangalore, has developed the first Indian MRI scanner.

  • The scanner's magnets use liquid nitrogen for cooling instead of helium.

  • The first clinically validated product will be unveiled in October at the Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Bengaluru.
